Prob With Windows Mail

  [email protected] 08:33 24 Apr 2007

I am having problems with one of my BT accounts in windows mail, I can receive to it but unable to send. when I try to send from this particular account windows security pops up requesting my user name and password so I enter the details but it keeps popping up with the same request, I have checked settings in the mail account and all is fine even my user name and password is stored,
This is the only account that is giving me a problem the other 4 accounts are all working fine; this one has also worked ok for 5 months but has just stopped working for no reason

I had a similar problem with my Outlook account, in the end I did a system restore and all was well.

Tried that no joy, have also uninstalled nis 2007 deleted all email accounts then re-entered the accounts and then re-installed nis 2007 all was ok for 1 day then back to the scenario of unable to send from that one account

There's various settings that can affect this, I can't remember which but look for
'my server requires authentication'

There may be other settings to try - all within tools - email accounts - and somewhere in there, maybe an advanced option.

I also use BT Internet with Windows Mail. You must turn on SMTP authentication by selecting [in Windows Mail] tools/accounts then highlight the mail account and click on properties. Select the 'servers' tab and insert a tick in the 'my SMTP server requires authentication' box. For more info. follow this link click here (although it doesn't specifically advise about Windows Mail).
